Abstract: The workshop "Geodynamic Evolution of the Transantarctic Mountains and West Antarctic Rift System" was convened to provide a forum for discussion of future research on Antarctic rifting processes. The workshop drew on the expertise of thirty one geologists and geophysicists currently involved in Antarctic research or investigating other rift systems. The general goal of the workshop was to foster enhanced cooperation and communcation between the Antarctic geologic community, the Antarctic geophysical community and the global community studying the processes of rifting and rift-related uplift. Workshop sessions were designed to critically examine process-oriented rift models, with particular emphasis on identifying geological and geophysical tests of these models that can be applied to the unique Antarctic setting. Recommendations for future research are included in the workshop proceedings.
